Food and uncooked fabric for its creation used to be mostly produced through the normal agriculture. nevertheless, novel chemical compounds have been synthetic within the laboratory or extracted from plant and animal assets. notwithstanding, because the international inhabitants is gradually in­ creasing, there's a reduce in conventional agriculture productiveness and matters also are expressed over the wear inflicted to the surroundings and regulations that will be en­ compelled in nutrition creation. while, there's an expanding call for for top qual­ ity agricultural items in addition to for nutrition components concerning either the normal or newly chanced on nutrition or phytochemicals. traits and developments,~n the realm of plant biotechnology and bioengineering has allowed manipulation of genes' !lnd/or insertion of recent genes, hence construction of trans­ genic vegetation. ranging from the advent of agronomic characteristics, fairly rigidity resis­ tance to various environmental components, technique and sensory features, foodstuff caliber and creation of novel forms of plant-based items via genetic engineering, biotechnology is altering the,;agriculture and the concept that of creation of plant-ba~~d uncooked fabrics. expanding awareness is being paid on examine for creation of crops !pat promises a wide range of meals and non-food items. might be the 1st non-food pro,d­ uct that plant biotechnology could in achieving is creation of huge scale custom-designed business oils, however the record of chemical compounds is lengthy, ranging" from oils and particular triacyl­ glycerols to biopolymers, enzymes, blood elements, amo~g others.

This, in conjunction with detailed molecular maps, based on RFLP, cDNA and micro satellite markers, now allows for positional cloning of genes which have been mapped to within an accuracy of about IcM. Although the current Brassica lineage probably diverged from the Arabidopsis lineage about 10 million years ago, their genomes exhibit striking similarities. The diploid Brassicas appear to contain 3 more-or-less complete, although somewhat rearranged, copies of an Arabidopsis-sized genome in which the gene order and intergenic distances are substantially conserved (Parkin et aI, 1997).

1996). Specific reasons for the low levels produced in these cases are not known. However, it appears that plants that do produce significant amounts of oxygenated fatty acids (ricinoleate from castor; 12,13-epoxy oleate from Vernonia) have specific enzymatic systems not just for production of the fatty acid but also for incorporating it into triacylglycerols. We describe here our research and review related research to report the specific factors that lead to high levels of ricinoleate production and incorporation into triacylglycerols by castor.

The 40% stearic rapeseed contains an antisense copy of a Brassica stearate desaturase gene. This interferes with the function of the normal rapeseed stearate desaturase gene leading to an accumulation of stearic acid rather than allowing its desaturation to oleic acid (Knutzon et ai, 1992). The resulting high stearic oil may have advantages over normal rapeseed oil for the production of certain solid fats such as margarines. The major challenge with the 40% stearic rapeseed variety is its relatively poor agronomic performance as exemplified by low germination rates.
